Fairtrade Vending – Helping You to Choose Products That Save Lives
At Ratio Vending, we offer a dedicated Fairtrade vending service as part of our commitment to recognising and championing ethical working conditions.
The 2015 Fairtrade Fortnight took place 23 February – 8 March. It was a global initiative to encourage people to “choose products that save lives”, centred around a short film and a series of competitions. Fairtrade Fortnight celebrated the power of everyday choices, and offered strong evidence that buying ethical products really can make a difference.
Last year in the UK, there were £1.57 billion UK sales of Fairtrade products, which sell in 125 countries across the world. People who buy Fairtrade products do so in the knowledge that nobody has been exploited throughout the entire supply chain. From the grower to the distributor, everyone got a fair deal.
At Ratio Vending, we offer a dedicated Fairtrade vending service as part of our commitment to recognising and championing ethical working conditions. In our range of Fairtrade products you’ll find teas, coffees, and chocolates, all of which have been carefully sourced to help improve working conditions and trade structures in the developing world.
Stock your vending machines and coffee machines with our Fairtrade products, and not only will you help to fulfil your corporate social responsibilities, you may also notice a significant boost to your income. Put simply, people like to feel that they’re making a difference, so these products sell!
But there are many organisations dedicated to improving working conditions and farming practices around the world. At Ratio Vending, in addition to offering a Fairtrade vending service, we also sell Rainforest Alliance and UTZ Certified products from brands such as Flavia & Lavazza coffee for bean to cup coffee machines
Rainforest Alliance certified goods are produced with consideration for the conservation and preservation of the natural environment and wildlife. Meanwhile, UTZ Certified is a programme for sustainable farming, particularly in the production of chocolate. Their label is found on over 10,000 different products in over 116 countries, and we take great pride in offering our customers an extensive choice of UTZ Certified goods for vending machines.
If you’re interested in providing an ethical choice of drinks and snacks, we can help you to choose a menu that satisfies your corporate social responsibilities whilst enabling you and your customers to do your bit in making the world a better place.
